Senior Software Engineer

| Greater NYC Area

Blink Health is fixing how broken, opaque, and unfair healthcare is. We're a well-funded healthcare technology company on a mission. We’re changing healthcare through technology and transparency. With our proprietary technology, everyone now has access to the lowest prices on over 15,000 medications. But there is more work to do.

We are a continuously learning, curious, collaborative team dedicated to inventing new ways of working in an industry that historically has resisted innovation. We're assembling the experienced and talented team to get this done.

About the role:

Blink is looking for Senior Software Engineers to build user experiences and the APIs that power them. In addition to working on our public facing website (www.blinkhealth.com) you will build new unreleased products, marketing systems like our conversational commerce system, and tools that help us provide the best customer experience in healthcare.

We believe in using a small number of well-known tools like AWS, Python, Javascript, MySQL, and Linux. We are looking for engineers that value simplicity, pragmatism, have a bias towards action, and are passionate about building products that bring real value to our customers.

If you join Blink, you will:

  • Build new features, write unit tests, and lead the release of these features to production.
  • Develop and AB test new ReactJS components to improve our user experience
  • Design new APIs to power new features
  • Fix performance problems and debug production issues
  • Perform peer code and architecture reviews
  • Participate in on-call rotation and improve our run-books
  • Collaborate with your team to architect and document new systems

About You:

You are an engineer who, above all, is excited to build products that give our customers the best possible experience purchasing prescription medications. You have professional experience working on a team turning ideas into reliable, maintainable code.

You will be successful in this role if you:

  • Have built web applications professionally
  • Want to work in a highly collaborative environment: we believe a team can be stronger than its individual parts
  • Are independent and curious
  • Are comfortable owning features from design through delivery to production
  • Have experience with one or more modern programming languages
  • Are willing to dive into a large code base and contribute immediately
  • Enjoy writing code that is understandable, maintainable, and testable
  • Can communicate effectively with other engineers, designers, product managers, and anyone else at Blink
  • Are excited to both design scalable APIs and elegant front-end code

Extras:

  • You have a lot of experience with Python, ReactJS, or even better, both
  • You have experience building polished, consumer-grade websites

Why Join Us:

At Blink, we put humans first.
It's our ambition that everyone at Blink is doing the best work of their lives.
Your professional development is paramount. Not only will you have the opportunity to learn alongside some of the best in the business, but we also host a multitude of structured in-office learning opportunities: extensive onboarding, Brown Bags, Women's leadership classes, deep dives on health care issues, Book Club, and our Blink Thinks series with external guests. We have a number of personalized programs --- including weekly check-ins with your manager and Blink Individualized Growth (aka B.I.G.) Plans ---- to ensure you are always growing. 
In addition to the satisfaction of working for a mission-driven company, we offer a competitive salary, fully-sponsored healthcare, stock options, communal breakfast and lunch every day, Blink-sponsored clubs, monthly events, happy hours, and more.
Join us!

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity of all kinds. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
